The firm's assay measures the concentration of the wild type and mutant alleles of hFE protein at three different mutation sites from a person's blood sample.

Simulated population data suggests that the lifetime risk of cervical cancer is lower for women who stop screening after a negative DNA test for oncogenic HPV.

At AMP, the companies announced a partnership to add Paragon Genomics' NGS target enrichment technologies to the flagship Sophia AI platform worldwide.

The test is intended to identify patients with ROS1, NTRK, and ALK gene fusions for treatment with TP's investigational drug repotrectinib.

The two companies have signed a collaboration agreement to provide Promega's microsatellite instability testing technology for immuno-oncology.

The firm’s two-step multiplexed-tandem PCR tool identifies low concentrations of multiple STI pathogens in samples with high concentrations of other pathogens in three hours.

The plaintiffs claim that Qiagen's QIAseq kits infringe Archer's US Patent No. 10,017,810, which covers parts of its Anchored Multiplex PCR (AMP) technology.

Collaborators said that the test is accurate and reliable for the rapid detection of the most common gram-positive bacteria responsible for bloodstream infections.

The new assay simultaneously detects four viral targets in donated blood plasma in a single sample and can add value to the biologics development space.

The funding will help Mobidiag scale up production of its Novodiag instruments and disposable cartridges, and improve its global sales and marketing activities.
